We are the Hawkey family and Penpont Farm has been in our family for three generations.
In the 1970’s, we made the brave decision to diversify into tourism by converting a number of stone and slate barns, which formed the old yard of Penpont Farm, into self-catering holiday cottages.
They proved very popular as visitors enjoyed the mix of a working farm with the peace and quiet of the countryside.
We renovated all the suitable farm buildings and built some new cottages in the surrounding fields. This move created the nucleus for a business that has flourished ever since and is known as “The Olde House”.
Over the years we have added extra facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, whirlpool bath, toddler’s pool, snooker table, indoor/outdoor play areas and tennis courts.
